NEWS FROM THE OFFICE OF DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
The Power of Symbols: When Hate Visits Our Community
Symbols convey considerable meaning in an immediately recognizable form, and the power they can have is tremendous. Some symbols are meant to evoke feelings of hate or anger, or to spark fear and insecurity. Hosted by the UCF Office of Diversity and Inclusion, this event will explore how symbols affect our campus and ways in which we respond and feature a panel of members from the Anti-Defamation League, UCF Police Department and Central Florida Hillel. For more information, please view the event flyer.

REMINDER FOR SUMMER COURSE DEVELOPMENT: COURSE PREVIEW TOOL
The Course Preview tool is available to advertise a tentative syllabus to potential students who are registering for classes. This information is not automatically available to all students. Faculty must opt-in to this feature. The tentative syllabus can only be seen by current UCF students and is not available via the public search for classes.

FACULTY WRITING CLUB 2016
Join a faculty writing club to start your spring semester off with a focus on productivity and camaraderie. Having trouble getting into a good writing rhythm? Need to get away from your office to get a change of perspective and a little privacy? Forget the coffee shop—join your colleagues on Thursday and Friday mornings from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. in FCTL for a loosely structured writing session. We'll take five or six minutes each week to go around the room and state a goal for the time block and then spend the rest of the time working on our individual projects. Bring your own laptop or use an FCTL computer. And of course there will be coffee. Everyone is welcome!
